Bmw crowned as 2010 Fleet Car Manufacturer of the Year

Article by Christian A., on October 13, 2010

BMW Group was named as the Fleet Car Manufacturer of the Year at the Green Fleet Awards, its third time in a row to grab the prestigious plum. BMW Group grabbed the top prize mainly thanks to its commitment to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by expanding its range of low emission vehicles and by offering alternative fuel vehicles to fleet customers.

As a matter of proof, BMW Group introduced new vehicles like the new BMW 5 Series, which boasts of emitting a much lower level of carbon dioxide than its predecessor. For instance, the carbon dioxide emission level for the BMW 520d is 129 g/km while the combined level for the BMW 320d EfficientDynamics is 109 g/km.

Angela Pisanu, Editor of Green Fleet, remarked that through BMW's EfficientDynamics initiative, the German luxury carmaker has been raising the bar in terms of reductions in carbon dioxide emissions while still offering exceptional vehicle performance and economy.

Pisanu added that the carmaker's emission achievements in small, medium and upper fleet vehicle sector have convinced Green Fleet that it is worthy of the award. Stephen Chater, BMW Group Corporate Operations Manger, described the award as great news, adding that it is a testament to BMW’s continued commitment in cutting emissions via its EfficientDynamics program.

The BMW Group – through its BMW, MINI and Rolls-Royce brands – is considered as one of the most successful auto companies globally. The BMW Group sold around 1.29 million autos and over 87,000 motorcycles globally in the 2009 financial year, posting total revenues of EUR50.68 billion.

It has 24 production sites in 13 countries and has a global sales network in over 140 countries. As of December 31, 2009, BMW Group had a global workforce of around 96,000 people. The BMW Group has built its success on long-term thinking and responsible action.

On achieving this goal, BMW Group has taken efforts to establish ecological and social sustainability throughout the value chain.

Likewise, BMW Group boasts of a comprehensive product responsibility as well as commitment to conserving resources. As testament to these efforts, the BMW Group has been considered as an industry leader in the Dow Jones Sustainability Indexes for the past six years.

As recognition of the class-leading position BMW Group vehicles command, courtesy of EfficientDynamics technologies, the marque has once again scooped the top prize at the Green Fleet Awards to be crowned Fleet Car Manufacturer of the Year.

BMW Group was recognised, for the third year in a row, as the car manufacturer that had shown the greatest improvements in CO2 emissions, had expanded its range of low emission vehicles or offered alternative fuel vehicles to fleet customers.

BMW’s achievements in small, medium and in particular the upper fleet vehicle sector convinced us that the firm is once again a worthy winner.”
